Tenniscoats experiment with a wide range of inspiration in their music.  Both members of the band have pursued solo projects, and together their music competence adds a layer of intrigue to their homemade sound. Their melodies are charming, ethereal, and sometimes haunting. The vocals posses an airy, relatable tone, and the lyrical diction is conversational. The instrumentation is intricate and thoughtful. Because Tenniscoats collaborate with other bands, any given track might have a different assortment of instruments and sounds. Synthesizers and guitar are more or less constant, but brass and woodwinds, among others, make appearances.  Songs range from Indie pop-appeal, to experimental, borderline- psychedelic. On Tan-Tan Therapy, Tenniscoats recruit help from their Swedish Label-mate Tape.

Band Members: Saya and Ueno Takashi (often with guest musicians)
